Forcing iPhone to connect to 2.4 Ghz network in an Eero meshed network
I have a (1st gen) Eero mesh network in the house. Everything works great, but.....
I have a short term/temporary need to connect my iPhone to the 2.4 Ghz network, but it seems to auto choose the 5 Ghz network, even with network steering shut off on the Eero's. Is there any way to force an iPhone to choose the 2.4 Ghz network, or failing that, is there a way to shut off the 5 Ghz network (just for 10 minutes at most)? I can't see/figure out how to do either.

THE ANSWER: Create a name for a new "Guest Access" network account in your eero settings and you can choose it to use 5G or 2.4Ghz.. The Main eero network is on 2.4ghz (but it does uses sub 2.4 and 5 ghz channels).
